Gnumeric 1.9.5 aka "TBD" is now available.

The Gnumeric Team is pleased to announce the availability of Gnumeric version 1.9.5. This release requires the concurrently released goffice 0.7.4. We also recommend libgsf 1.4.11.

This release primarily works around an ABI change in GTK+ 2.16. It also comes with a collection of bug fixes, see below.

Attention packagers: goffice no longer depends on libgnome, libgnomeui, and gnome-vfs. (To get the full benefit of this, make sure libgsf is not compiled to require gnome-vfs and bonobo.)

Attention packagers: please do not ship goffice with equation enabled.
